Pearl Harbor

Today marks a day of historical significance, the anniversary of when we were attacked at Pearl Harbor by the Japanese at 7:48 am. While we had been providing support for the war efforts prior to the attack, Pearl Harbor made it plainly clear that we could no longer stand on the sidelines.

Many would lose their lives that day, and many more to follow. All of those fought for the ideals that this nation was found upon. As we take time to remember those who lost their lives, we should also ensure that those ideals are not forgotten as well. Those ideals, our Constitution, are just as relevant now as it was then.

Generation Gap

A late model Coyote sits alongside a 1970 Boss 302. Two generations, united by a common color... Grabber Blue.

Orange

Perhaps this Mustang owner is the Stig, and he obviously loves orange! One thing is certain, orange certainly looked good on the rest of this classic!

Under The Hood

Ditching the hood liner and finishing out the underside of the hood sure looks better than the way a Mustang comes from the factory. Taken at the 2015 Mustang Week Car Show.

Fox Tires Matter

Since Labor Day was yesterday, and it marks the official end of summer, I thought that a photo of a Fox notch tearing up the tires on the Myrtle Beach Speedway at Mustang Week this past year was appropriate.

Hot Asphalt

Nothing like a good tire scrubbing to clean the asphalt at the Myrtle Beach Speedway!

I followed this car into the car show on Friday at Mustang Week, and it sounds as good as it looks! Almost expected Randall "Memphis" Raines to get out it after it was parked.

Story
Tagline
IT by day, photographer and Ford Mustang enthusiast by night.
Introduction

I started my journey into the IT industry around 1981 at the age of 11 with not one, but two TI-99/4A’s and a couple of cassette recorders for storage. Interesting enough, not that it mattered as much to me at the time, the TI-99/4A was the first 16-bit personal computer. Powerful for its time, I still managed to push it to its memory limits, programming in BASIC and creating a few programs that suited my needs at the time.

I’m the Information Technology Manager at Davidson Water Inc., a private non-profit water utility that serves parts of four counties in N.C. While my main job is maintaining the IT infrastructure, I tend to wear several hats that have involved involving water modeling, radio telemetry, and other similar items that may pop up from day to day.

I’m also an avid Ford Mustang enthusiast, having kept at least one Mustang in my garage since 1989. The list of Mustangs that have passed through my garage are:

  • 1965 V6 Mustang Coupe
  • 1989 Mustang LX 5.0
  • 2000 V6 Mustang Coupe
  • 2000 V6 Mustang Convertible
  • 2000 Mustang GT Convertible
  • 2004 V6 Mustang Coupe
  • 2006 Mustang GT Convertible
Currently I still have the following:
  • 1989 Mustang LX 5.0
  • 2006 Mustang GT Convertible
My 2006 GT Convertible is primarily a show car, although it still gets driven quite a bit. It has won numerous car show awards, including Best of Show at a large annual event in Burlington, NC, and Best 05-09 at Mustang Week in 2010, 2012, and 2013. Mustang Week, hosted in Myrtle Beach SC, is one of the largest annual Mustang events on the east coast.

I enjoy photography, both traditional photography as well as HDR/Tone Mapped images. I generally shoot in raw (Canon .cr2), and then process the raw files with Lightroom 4. Depending upon what I'm after I may also use Photomatix Pro, Nik, or Corel Paint Shop Pro.

While a lot of my images focus on automotive themes, since I participate in a lot of car shows, there's way more out there to photograph than cars! So you'll find a mix of subjects in my photographs. I'm also a curator for the Four Wheeled Friday Theme and Community.

Current Major Equipment List:
  • Canon Rebel XT (Gripped)
  • Canon 40D (Gripped)
  • Canon 5D Mark III (Gripped)
  • Canon 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
  • Canon 50mm f/1.8 II
  • Canon 17-40mm f/4L USM
  • Canon 24-105mm f/4L IS USM
  • Canon 70-200mm f/4L IS USM
  • Canon 400mm f/5.6L USM
  • Canon 1.4x III Teleconverter
  • Canon Extension Tube EF12 II
  • Canon Extension Tube EF25 II
  • Manfrotto 055XPROB Tripod Legs
  • Manfrotto 190CXPRO4 Tripod Legs
  • Manfrotto 496RC2 Midi Ball Head
  • Manfrotto 498RC2 Midi Ball Head
I have been publishing some photography articles through my blog. There's not much rhyme or reason to the articles. It is just whatever, and whenever, something pops into my mind to write about.

Bragging rights
